Sparkle Magazine Illo - "A Change of Heart"

  1. I love seeing these progress shots Cheryl! The sister definitely has attitude! You captured her emotion sooo well! These illustrations look like fun to do. They always make me smile when I see them and remind me of the many great books I have read to my students. Great Job as usual!!
